The average asking price of property coming to market fell by 2.4% (-£6,181) in November, in line with the usual pre-Christmas slowdown. This compares with an average November fall over the last three years of 3%, so while this year’s drop is slightly more muted, it still reflects a reduction in the number of good quality higher-priced properties coming to market as the festive season approaches.

The Chilterns, the first entirely new-build development in Marylebone for five years, is marking its rareness with a one-off offering for buyers when it launches this month. All 44 properties – priced from £3m – come with an original framed photograph of Marylebone by David Bailey, each worth around £20,000.
“The Chilterns is setting a benchmark in high-end development projects and setting a trend for utilising original art,” says the project’s interior designer, Rabih Hage. “Others will follow in its footsteps.”
